Arbor Edge Defense

In this world, DDoS attacks are evolving. The new preferred method of DDoS attack is a multi-vector dynamic direct path attack that adjusts vectors and methodologies to continually evade existing DDoS defenses. Add to this the ransomware, phishing attempts and compromised IoT devices and how the organizations are under constant risk from all types of advanced cyber threats. To address these evolving threats, the security teams need solutions that can adapt to the changing attacks. This solution is also able to integrate into an organization's existing security stack and/or consolidate functionality to reduce cost, complexity and risk. To answer all the statements, NetScout launched a solution called Arbor Edge Defense.
